I wanted to let you know about a free IBF briefing paper on organisations like BT creating value through ‘recession-strength’ intranets, as well as some general good practice principles.
As the global recession takes hold, intranets increasingly find themselves in the firing line. Even among IBF member organisations, which between them run some of the world’s most advanced intranets, budgets are being cut and new developments turned down. The smartest intranet managers are responding by finding new ways for the intranet to deliver previously hidden value for the organisation. They’re also busy assembling data to prove ROI. In doing so, they’re turning the threat of cutbacks into an opportunity to ensure that they, their intranets and their organisations survive and prosper in tough times.
This briefing paper presents recent examples of BT and other organisations inside and outside IBF creating value through ‘recession-strength’ intranets. I hope it will give you inspiration and practical ideas for your own plans.
